Online student registration for the 2022-23 school year is now open. If you have not already started this process for your student(s), please visit our registration page to start this process.

Registration is the first step in getting ready for the up-coming school year. After you register your child online you need to:

  1. Pay student fees. Our student fee webpage outlines the District’s student fee structure and the three ways fees can be paid.

  2. If you have a student that is starting Kindergarten, entering fourth grade, or entering 7th grade, you are required to prove residency in District 15. Our residency webpage outlines the documents you will need to provide to prove residency.

All three steps of the enrollment process must be completed prior to the start of the school year. Students of families that, when required, do not prove residency, will not be able to attend class in a District 15 until the family’s residency is verified.


View the recorded CCSD15 Parent University sponsored registration webinar. For written registration instructions, please watch our Campus Parent - An Introduction.

In the event that a family is unable to provide any needed documentation because of a temporary living situation, please contact Julie O'Hara, 847-963-3210, oharaj@ccsd15.net; or Min Goodwin, 847-963-3209, goodwinm@ccsd15.net, in the Superintendent's Office.

Dental Services for Eligible Children

Community Consolidated School District 15 will be hosting Orland Park Dental Services (OPDS) coming up in March through May. OPDS has provided in-school dental services for all eligible children in the State of Illinois since 1999. Dental services will be accessible to children eligible for public aid as well as for those with private insurance.

Anyone signed up will receive a free dental exam and a toothbrush. For those that qualify or provide private insurance information, the additional services may include cleaning, fluoride treatment, and sealants. All services done will be given to the child in a take-home form describing the services determined, areas of concern, overall oral care score, and any additional care needed. If any additional help is needed for the child a comprehensive list of available local dentists will be given with no limits of insurance. All these in-school services will be provided by licensed dentists, hygienists, and assistants with state-of-the-art portable equipment and ensure a clean, safe, and comfortable environment at your child’s school.

8th Grade Graduation Updates

8th grade students, Design the Graduation Lawn Sign: Entries due by February 11 to Mrs. Spiropoulos. They will be voted on by your peers.

PATH Community Closet

Every year, many children in the Palatine area lack proper clothing for Illinois’ winter weather. District 15 has a long-standing partnership with the PATH Community Closet. The Community Closet serves the Palatine area by providing donated clothing to children and families in need. The impact of COVID has left the Community Closet with less donated clothing than in past years. We are hoping you can help by donating any unwanted clothing items to your school’s yellow clothing donation bin. The bin is located our school’s lobby. Parents or children can place clothing items into their school’s yellow bin during regular school hours. This is a great way to put your children’s gently used and outgrown clothing to good use! All clothing, especially winter wear, is much appreciated and will be put to good use.

Warriors Wear Masks

Per Governor Pritzker's Executive Order, all students, staff and visitors across District 15 Schools are required to wear masks.

Chromebook Reminders

Students should be charging their Chromebooks nightly. We encourage familes to create a system that everynight at a certain hour, the student puts their Chromebook to charge as they pack their backpack for the following day.

Reporting an Absence

If your student will be absent for any reason, please give us a call on the attendance line.
